The Dove Cottage
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
A unique 2 bedroom cosy cottage, situated within the larger estate of Manor Farm. Bursting with character, this gorgeous cottage offers accommodation for up to four people, in the quaint village of Oldcotes, near Worksop, Nottinghamshire.
Whether you're looking for a quiet, cosy weekend or an adventurous family holiday, The Dove Cottage provides a perfect getaway in a semi rural location near to some superb local attractions.
After our first very successful season, we have had such wonderful guests stay and their comments have been amazing!! It has been a delight to welcome a wide range of groups including families, couples, wedding guests, lone travellers, consultants/lecturers and visitors from the USA.
Yorkshire/Nottinghamshire is definitely putting itself on the map and with the Tour De France coming through Yorkshire this summer and Hull has been announced as The City of Culture so a visit to 'God's Own Country' as named by locals, really is a must. Put that together with the rolling hills of the Peak District, the flatness of Lincolnshire and the lively cities of Sheffield, Nottingham and Leeds being nearby, The Dove Cottage is well situated.
Your stay at The Dove Cottage will be 'wonderful' and such 'great value for money' according to previous guests. The cottage is quirky and quintessentially English, with comfort and character rolled into one. Two super sized bedrooms provide one double and an ensuite. A cot bed and high chair is provided for our smaller visitors. The bedrooms have super views out across Hermaston Hall and the views beyond are spectacular. The rooms are warm, sunny with plenty of storage for long stays.
The bathroom is a great size, with a shower over the bath - Egyptian Towels and linen all provided.
The kitchen/diner is perfect for preparing meals and socialising in. It looks out into the private courtyard and is bright and airy. Appliances include gas/electric cooker, microwave, fridge plus fridge freezer, iPod docking station, kettle, toaster and a goofd selection of cutlery, crockery and cooking utensils.
The kitchen leads through a small passage way into a truly delightful lounge. With its own fireplace this has been a real hit with our guests during the winter months! A Flat screen, freeview TV is mounted on the wall with a DVD player and a selection of DVDs to watch at your leisure. The patio doors from the lounge open straight out into the garden which is yours to relax in or enjoy a BBQ. Outdoor furniture and BBQ provided.
The Dove Cottage is in the grounds of Manor Farm which is a completely gated and secluded property, you can be sure that you are holidaying in a safe place. The owners are personally on hand so you really don't need to worry about a thing except enjoying your stay and exploring all the gems of Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire.
If you need any further information about the property please email, we always respond! We hope to welcome you very soon!

"What a Delightful find"
Abi the owner was more than helpful upon arrival offering any assistance we needed a lovely lady who surprised us with a wonderful welcome pack and those unexpected little extras
The Dove Cottage is a truly Delightful holiday home very clean spacious and comfy,lovely garden area with an abundance of wildlife.
Ideally situated for visiting Sherwood forest,Yorkshire Dales and Moors,Nottingham for anyone needing retail on a big scale and so many other places to enjoy just by taking a mystery drive
We took the steam train from Pickering to Whitby which was very nice but I think our fav day was Sherwood forest a lovely walk to the Major Oak and then Archery followed by a lovely lunch in the cafe
Perfect for all ages

"Nice stay, but some things not as imagined"
When we arrived at Dove Cottage, we had a very nice welcome: wine, jam and marmalade, crisps. However, the brief contact we later had with the owners was very friendly, but also a bit unpersonal. The … More
There is nothing worse than having expectations of a holiday which doesn't quite live up to what was imagined........
Unfortunately, on this occasion Luke and I were unable to personally make our usual welcome. We love to meet all our guests and make sure everything is as expected and answer any questions.
During the summer months we don't tend to leave logs for the fire and the freezer is located in the 'old meat room' - I shall make this clearer in the 'welcome' literature we leave for guests.
We strive to provide all we can for our guests and that's why our contact numbers are made available so that anything can be asked for at any time......extra towels, dining chairs, logs or recommendations for great places to eat!
Blyth Road is normally a quiet road but due to a major link road being closed for maintenance nearby, our usually quiet road was used as a detour for all local traffic! :(( all back to normal now :))
I'm pleased to read that a nice stay was enjoyed and that the cottage was comfortable. In fact we have been so busy in our first year that we have just finished converting previous servants rooms above the old kitchen. We can now offer super accommodation for two (plus a little one) with great views across to the Dovecote and the fields beyond. Take a look, we've named it 'The Servants Quarters!'

"Nice touches but some basics lacking"
Extra crockery, cutlery and kitchen equipment would be useful - as would bedside lights that you can read by - only one in twin bedroom. Waste paper bins throughout would also be useful as would a fr… More
Thank you so much for the points you have identified. We really appreciate your honest thoughts and valuable review. From this we will be able to make some suitable additions to the cottage based on these suggestions.
I'm really pleased you enjoyed the outdoor space and little touches.
